Regenerative Medicine (Future of Plastic Surgery)
Regenerative Medicine is considered as Future of Plastic Surgery. Regenerative medicine is the science of using adipose-derived stem cells harvested from fat to regenerate cells and tissues in the human body. The main concept behind using regenerative medicine is not to relying exclusively on drugs or invasive surgical procedures and harnesses the body's own powers to heal itself. The field deals with the process of engineering human cells, or tissues to replace and restore normal function. While regenerative medicine chiefly includes therapies and devices that use stem cells as well as other cellular products such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP).
There are some biomedical procedures in the field of regenerative medicine may involve the use of stem cells. Such as: injection of stem cells i.e., directed differentiation; use of biologically activated molecules administered alone or in the form of infused cells i.e., immunomodulation therapy.
